Documentary, 55’34”, 2016
A flow of enthusiast women in professions overflown by man. Eight women working in the broad spectrum of scientific professions from artificial intelligence to programming and aviation, talk about the conditions in which they became interested in technical professions, the obstacles they confronted, and how they dealt with them.
In most technical occupations, women are still very poorly represented. However, those who have entered these fields of work despite the odds, usually show a very positive attitude towards their work, a pleasure in self-fulfilment through work, and professionalism in the occupation. The film reveals covert discrimination against women, which still prevents them from equally access to certain social spheres. The film also presented social circumstances that influence the decisions of individuals in the choice of their professions and how decisions are determined by gender.
